A gold winner Rhine Riesling from Badacsony
Oh Deer 2018 by Villa Sandahl
Say goodbye to the summer with one of the best Rieslings of Hungary – and also it is time to book a room at Villa Sandahl estate in Badacsony. The winery has a guest house with astonishing view of Lake Balatonand the soul healing vineyards around. And on top of that, guests can enjoy magnificent, juicy, unforgettable Rhine Rieslings.
Villa Sandahl Oh Deer was selected among Super 12, the best white wines by the Circle of Hungarian Winewriters earlier this year, and now Oh Deer won gold medal at the 2nd Winelovers Wine Awards international wine contest.
A unique concept – new topic in each vintage
Villa Sandahl has a unique concept: each vintage has a different topic on the labels, thus the names are different also. Some say that it does not help the distributors, since by the time the customers learn the name of the wine, a new vintage comes with different names. It is true, however, with this concept, customers don’t have to memorize vintages. If it is Oh Deer, it can come only from 2018 – plus Rhine Rieslings have long ageing potential, so Oh Deer lovers can enjoy the wines now and also for a long time.
Oh Deer is the No1 wine of the estate from vintage 2018. From this vintage the top category wines of the estate are provided with a black capsule with golden letters of ‘SANDAHL’. The labels are designed by one of the owners, Christer Sandahl. Each label of vintage 2018 depicts a road sign. On the label of Oh Deer we can see the Swiss Matterhorn mountain and a road sign. Why? Here comes the explanation of Christer Sandahl: “Because of being upset when warned for a falling deer.” (On the cover photo the label inspiring mountain is featured along with the wine.)
Don’t make a mistake, stay longer…
Sandahl Rezidencia is a small guest house with 4 rooms, altogether for 10 people. As one guest commented after his stay: “Spotless clean place, amazing view, top quality wine, delicious breakfast and wonderful atmosphere. My stay was tos short:(“.
